. Turning Cooler For The Weekend .

SHORT TERM (Today - Saturday). Adequate low level moisture is again supporting a good deal of low clouds across the forecast area early this morning with considerable mid and high clouds noted as well. Similar to yesterday expect the low clouds to linger through mid morning before mixing out with the mid and high level clouds resulting in a partly to mostly cloudy day. High pressure will continue to shift east into the Atlantic the remainder of today as an upper level low and attendant surface low over the central Plains moves east into the Ohio Valley. As the upper level low/surface low move east a trailing cold front will approach later this afternoon and then move south through the forecast area during tonight. Similar to yesterday some isolated showers (Pops 20%) will be possible north of the I-4 corridor this afternoon as moisture and low level convergence increases within the warm sector ahead of the front, with some additional isolated showers possible across the remainder of the forecast area through early tonight as the front moves into and through the area.

In the wake of the front cooler and drier air will move into the forecast area late tonight through Saturday with pleasant dry weather expected on Saturday as high pressure builds in from the northwest. Temperatures will run above normal today ahead of the front with highs climbing into the mid an upper 70s. Cooler air advecting in tonight will allow temperatures to fall into the mid and upper 40s across the Nature Coast after midnight, and lower to mid 50s central and south, with highs on Saturday topping out in the mid to upper 60s north, and around 70 to the lower 70s central and south.

LONG TERM (Saturday night - Thursday). Broad mid level cyclonic flow covers roughly 1/2 to 2/3s of the nation through midweek as a couple of short wave troughs track across the south-central and southeast states. A third short wave trough forms over the Four Corners region Wed then moves east and deepens into a low over west TX Thu . building down stream ridging over the Gulf of Mexico region.

Surface high pressure was centered in the Deep South Sat night while a front stretched along the Florida Keys and west across the Gulf of Mexico. Through Mon the high slides to the Atlantic and weakens as the front lifts into southern FL A wave/low forms. in response to the first short wave trough . on the front and tracks east bringing with it increasing rain chances Sunday night through early Monday. On Tue Canadian high pressure pushes into the Mid- Mississippi Valley then slides to the Atlantic coast by Thu. On the south side of that high pressure the second short wave trough develops a surface low that scoots along the northern Gulf coast and through north FL with some additional showers possible on Thursday.

AVIATION. Areas of IFR/LIFR cigs and MVFR/IFR vsbys will impact the terminals through 14Z. After 14Z VFR will return. East-southeast winds in the 4 TO 6 knot range this morning will become southeast to south around 10 knot after 14Z, then southwest around 10 knots after 19Z.

MARINE. High pressure moving east over the Atlantic and a cold front approaching from the west will support south to southwest winds around 10 knots with seas of 2 feet or less over the Gulf waters today. Winds will shift to the northwest and north at 10 to 15 knots tonight into Saturday as the cold front moves south through the waters and high pressure builds in from the northwest through Saturday night. During Sunday night through Monday high pressure over the northeast Gulf and a weak area of low pressure sliding east across the south-central Gulf and southern peninsula will support northeast to east winds in the 10 to 15 knot range with increasing chances for showers across the central and southern waters. In the wake of this low high pressure will build in north of the waters with northeast winds and dry conditions expected Monday night into Tuesday. Wind and seas should remain below 15 knots and 5 feet through the period with no headlines expected.

FIRE WEATHER. A cold front will move through the area tonight with some isolated showers along and ahead of it. In the wake of the front cooler and drier air will again move into the region during the weekend. This drier air will support a few hours of low humidity values below 35 percent across central and southern interior zones Sunday afternoon. Despite the low humidity though low ERC values combined with light winds will preclude Red Flag conditions from developing. An increase in moisture is expected early next week with no other fire weather hazards expected.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
